QUESTION 13

  1. Which of the following best describes the difference between the interpretation of the correlation coefficient and the beta coefficient for a regression equation expressing the relationship between variables X and Y?

     

    a. The beta coefficient represents the linear relationship between X and Y, whereas the correlation coefficient represents the percent variability in Y explained by X.

     

    b. The beta coefficient represents the difference between observed and expected values of Y, whereas the correlation coefficient represents the linear relationship between X and Y.

     

    c. The beta coefficient predicts increases or decreases in Y with increases or decreases in X, whereas the correlation coefficient provides a unit-free measure of the strength of the relationship.
